Remember when Roland Emmerich said he was done with disaster flicks after 2012 because he thought he couldn't outdo that film's sheer destruction?
Roland Emmerich’s $140 million sci-fi feature Moonfall is proof that he's far from done with the disaster genre and the synopsis implies he will indeed attempt to outdo himself in the destruction department. The synopsis definitely confirms this:
A mysterious force knocks the Moon from its orbit around Earth and sends it hurtling on a collision course with life as we know it. With mere weeks before impact and the world on the brink of annihilation, NASA executive and former astronaut Jo Fowler (Played by Halle Berry) is convinced she has the key to saving us all – but only one astronaut from her past, Brian Harper (Played by Patrick Wilson) and a conspiracy theorist K.C. Houseman (Played by John Bradley) believe her. These unlikely heroes will mount an impossible last-ditch mission into space, leaving behind everyone they love, only to find out that our Moon is not what we think it is.
And while we haven't gotten a trailer yet, today Lionsgate announced the film will land in theaters (or crash?) on February 4th, 2022. The film will co-star Michael Peña, Charlie Plummer, Kelly Yu, Eme Ikwuakor, Carolina Bartczak, and Donald Sutherland. Stay tuned!
